SOURCE CODE — Diablo II

Source Code — Diablo II

One does not simply play the Diablo series. It's more like being in a relationship—a one-sided relationship where one person is flighty and non-committal and the other is always forgiving and welcoming. Think of it like old girlfriend you "hate" that immediately calls you every time a guy breaks up with her. The key here is, in this relationship, you are the evil ex and Diablo will always be there to pick up the phone. Staying power and almost infinite replayability are factors that make Diablo II one of the best games of all time, computer-based or otherwise. And with Diablo III finally releasing fans from over a decade's worth of digital vasocongestion, there's no better time to look back and reflect upon how amazing a game Diablo II was and still is to me.

SOURCE CODE — Metal Gear Solid

Source Code: Metal Gear Solid

Almost every person with any kind of access to electronics plays video games in some shape or form. From Solitaire and Farmville to World of Warcraft and Call of Duty, video games hit with all demographics.

Any gamer worth their salt from my generation is gonna start by laying claim to Super Mario Brothers, Battletoads, Chrono Trigger, GoldenEye or even Zero Wing if only to secure O.G. status. They'll probably continue by rattling off their system history, console by console, making sure to wax nostalgic about all the gems featured on them. I'll admit, I've competed in these digital pissing contest a few times but that e-penis measurement, much like its real life counterpart, is wholly self serving. When you get down to a more personal level, most gamers have got to have that one title that made them realize, this isn't just a hobby for me, this is part of my life. And for me it is undoubtedly Metal Gear Solid.
